A possible Eucharistic miracle may have occurred at St Vincent de Paul Church in Springbrook, NY. When notified of the miracle, Bishop Malone (yes, him), instead of ordering a proper investigation, ordered that the Host be destroyed. His reasoning? He is quoted as saying, the Host had already dissolved and "Christ was no longer present".
Pictures clearly show the Host intact. Moreover, if the Host truly was already dissolved, there would be nothing left to destroy. Right, Your Excellency???
Bishop Malone's dismissive attitude towards the Blessed Sacrament is deplorable. He may now be guilty of sacrilege against our Eucharistic Lord. One of the commenters on the CM site believes that Malone may have automatically brought about his own excommunication.
The bishop needs to feel some heat for his refusal to follow proper procedures for investigating the possible miracle and for his cavalier attitude towards the Eucharist, leading to probable sacrilege. The diocesan website is here. All readers, no matter where they are, can call and/or email this diocese.
Many faithful Catholics in that area are righteously outraged. In addition to contacting that chancery, I'd suggest a complete boycott of all diocesan donations. I'd suggest that if you see the bishop in person, that you challenge him regarding his brash decisions and derelictions of duty. Let him know that bishops should act like bishops and not crass businessmen.
